Avengers Epic Collection: Once an Avengers
When Stan Lee turned the super-hero world on its head replacing Avengers founders Iron Man, Thor, Giant-Man and the Wasp with a trio of former super villains, readers thought he'd gone mad. As it turned out the only thing crazy was how insanely exciting the line-up of Captain America, Hawkeye, Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch would become! The hits continued with the fi rst appearance of the Collector, the Swordsman and the Sons of the Serpent, the Black Widow's Avengers debut and Giant-Man's transformation into Goliath. Despite the unbelievable heights the Avengers had reached under Lee, when he passed the title to Roy Thomas, the sky was the limit! 
COLLECTING: VOL. 2; AVENGERS (1963) 21-40 



Sensational She-Hulk by John Byrne: The Return
John Byrne makes his sensational return to the series he started, and She-Hulk's adventures as a super hero who knows she's in a comic book get wilder and more hilarious than ever! Shulkie will face problems high and low as her signature writer/penciler pits her against Spragg the Living Hill and sends her on a puntastic Jenny to the Center of the Earth! But will she say "I do" to the Mole Man? She-Hulk will banter, bodyswap and battle as she tackles foes like the Black Talon and his Unliving X-Humed, and may end up wiped out of comic book continuity by the Living Eraser! But is She-Hulk's greatest nemesis Xemnu the Titan, or John Byrne himself?!

Black Panther Epic Collection: Panther's Rage
In the 1960s, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created an unprecedented string of classic comic book heroes. Quite possibly the most iconic of them all was the high-tech king of Wakanda, The Black Panther. When the Panther began his own solo series, Don McGregor strove to meet Lee and Kirby's high standard with "Panther's Rage." It was an epic adventure so huge it ranged across the savannah, into the deepest jungles and up snow-topped mountains. Over its course, McGregor would explore and expand the life and culture of Wakanda and their African kingdom in compelling detail.
